Saint Martha of Bethany, sister of Lazarus and Mary, is a prominent figure in the New Testament. She is known for her hospitality and service to Jesus. Martha welcomed Jesus into her home and served Him with diligence and devotion. However, she also famously sought Jesus’ intervention when feeling overwhelmed with her responsibilities, as illustrated in the story of Mary and Martha. Jesus commended Martha’s willingness to serve but reminded her of the importance of prioritizing spiritual nourishment. Saint Martha’s faith deepened over time, and she made a profound profession of belief in Jesus as the Messiah during the resurrection of Lazarus. She is venerated as the patroness of hospitality, housewives, and cooks. Saint Martha’s feast day is celebrated on July 29th, and she is remembered for her loving service, humility, and unwavering faith in Jesus.
